Chapter 5: Installing SUSE Linux


Overview

It's now time to install Linux. This chapter details how to install SUSE Linux, as supplied with this book. SUSE uses its own YaST2 program for this purpose.

Installing Linux is a surprisingly quick task to complete and shouldn't take more than 30 minutes on a modern PC. It's also fairly simple, with very few decisions to make throughout. The YaST2 program automates the task to a high degree.

However, you should examine all of the options you're offered to make sure they're correct. Installing an operating system involves a couple of serious maneuvers that, via an incorrect click of the mouse or accidental keystroke, bring with them the possibility of data loss. Be sure to keep your wits about you, and make a backup of your data!
